Is Tempus Sacconi really revolutionary in terms of stability?

Obviously yes we were able to interview our journalists on the ground. So it looks like Saucony’s new model, Tempus, delivers on its promises. They contribute to the stability and support of the foot, while offering a light, dynamic and cushioned stride. Discover a road shoe that adapts to all situations. It is not very common. Saucony’s new model, Tempus, doesn’t fit in any box. Is it a shoe that provides good stability? Yes, given the support of the foot and the torsional rigidity it provides. Is it a proper training shoe, allowing for a quick, light, cushioned stride? Again, yes. Light, under 250g, soft stretch fabric wraps the foot, just enough to provide a smooth, comfortable and explosive stride. Given the heterogeneity of features this model offers, few running shoes seem to be able to rival it. Pwrrun PB feel, with added traction The springy feel of the Tempus underfoot comes from a full-length midsole made with Pwrrun PB, an ultra-lightweight, shock-absorbing Polyether Blockamide (PEBA) foam. In fact, Saucony uses the same foam for the Endorphin Pro – its best carbon-coated marathon shoe – and the Endorphin Speed, its most popular training model for the Tempo Run. The Pwrrun PB delivers a trampoline-like response, making you feel like you’re moving forward, as long as you stay straight, balanced and efficient in your effort. However, once your situation becomes dangerous, your stride can quickly deteriorate, and the foam swells every drop or unstable push. “When you use a high-energy foam like Pwrrun PB, the liner actually creates instability for the runner,” says Chad Holt.
